Brad has been a student of yoga, movement and meditation from his earliest days of childhood. He was always an athlete, playing sports of every kind. Before entering high school, Brad’s father introduced him to Yoga. In high school, he experienced a severe knee injury that led him to surgery and physiotherapy. Throughout his rehabilitation, he found himself practicing yoga for a few hours every day and falling in love with its benefits. Brad’s studied under many teachers and ashrams in the world and has studied yoga in places such as Zanzibar, Tanzania, Gdynia and across India.
Vanessa is a Toronto based yoga teacher with a strong focus on flexibility and strength, while emphasizing breath and alignment. She was immediately drawn to the power of the practice – using mindful breath to enjoy not just the physical benefits that can be gained from yoga, but the mental and spiritual aspects as well. She also encourages students to step out of their comfort zones with creative and accessible variations and have fun with their practice!
